I have always been fascinated by the art of Origami.  I am also not that great at it...until now.  I am still not an expert, but with Story-gami, I was able to share this fun and exciting art form with my daughter. 

Story-gami is a fantastic way to not only learn the art, but tell a story.

The joy in folding origami is often found in the deceptively simple magic of transforming a single piece of paper into a recognizable object. All too often, the steps it takes to transform paper into origami designs can be frustrating.

Story-gami Kit is an innovative new paper craft kit from world renowned origami artists, Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander who have created entire storylines around characters Righty and Lefty and their adventures climbing mountains, going on boat rides, and hanging out with bunnies. Each story's end results in a finished piece of origami, like an elegant butterfly, a jumping frog or a flapping bird and allowing anyone to discover the magic in creating something beautiful out of a simple piece of paper. Through the mnemonic of storytelling, LaFosse and Alexander make origami paper folding easy for those with any level of skill and a whole lot of fun. The unique method of storytelling makes this a great origam-for-kids kit and an excellent way to learn orgami.

This origami kit includes:

  • Full color, 80-page origami book
  • Clear step-by-step instruction and diagrams
  • 18 fun origami projects
  • A 90 minute instructional DVD
  • 80 sheets of durable origami folding papers
  • A variety of different colors
I can honestly say that though the DVD is helpful, the book is so wonderfully written, that I was able to work from that alone as well. 

I plan on picking up with little gem for some upcoming birthday parties and even to use in my class.
